A SPECIAL WORD TO MR. DAHL AND TO SOME OTHERS
Hans Dahl thought he had a grievance against the Times. Had Dahl come to the Times office and shown that he had been unfairly treated, the matter would • have been rectified. The Times has always been, and will always be, ready and willing to do the fair thing by every body. It will be just as fair to the weakest and most friendless man as to the most powerful. The Times, of course, will make mistakes, but its mistakes will be honest ones. When it has made a mistake the Times will be big enough to correct it. This newspaper's square deal policy has no limita tions. It's policy is just as much of a guarantee to the saloonman as it is to the churchman.

Klected today, 10.- Whether there are to be two conventions at Aberdeen Wednes day to select Washington^ 14 delegates to the national conven tion, depends upon the state cen tral committee which meets to morrow. Taft leaders are openly boast- Ing that this pro-Taft committee •will arbitrarily disregard the Roosevelt-UaFollette majority, and will seat every contested Taft delegate in the convention on temporary rollcall, which was the cause of course of the absurd bolt here. The program for the proposed convention steal includes an ar rangement to admit no one into the convention hall unless lie has a certificate ■ signed by B. W. Coiner. The secretary of the commit tee, Edgar C. Snyder, Seattle, is a progressive. Hay Has Cold Feet. Gov. Hay, although a Taft man, has been attempting to dissuade the Taft. leaders from carrying out this program, so as to avert his own defeat for re-election. Insurgents, however, have little hope for a "square deal" and they are preparing to use physical force if necessary to gain admis sion to the hall. Prepare To Kill Rev.

A few years ago Homer Lea, a Los Angeles boy, went to Stanford university from the high school. He was a hunchback, crippled in body, but of wonderful brain. A year later he became associ ated with the little band of men who were even then dreaming of a new China. There were meetings and strange feasts in the heart of San Francisco's Chinatown, at which crippled American, Lea, was an honored guest. He left school and disappeared. A year later an American trav eling far in the interior of China found the ex-Stanford student drilling and training a regiment of Chinese. He developed a military genius which startled the world through his book "The Valor of Ignor ance."

WELL KNOWN TACOMA MEN, THEIR BUSINESS AND THEIR HOBBIES Is there any luck in a horse shoe? Twenty-five years ago as Joe Bachrach, a clerk, was plodding up the dsuty road from the N. P. dock, his dreams were of the Ori ent, a good clerkship with Lil llenthal & Co. in Yokohama. He had just interviewed the captain of an Orient bound steamer. He didn't hav^ much money, but he did have a fund of energy and was quick to act on impulse. He stumbled ov«r something In the road and turning, found a horse shoe, Just a common horse shoe that had been thrown by tome truck horse hauling freight to the steamer. The points stuck out right for luck. Right then Joe Bachrach, clerk, decided that he did .not want to go to Yokohama. He was going lo remain in Tacoma and make his fortune.

ARTICLE; 3—JOSEPH BAOHRACH Times plays no favorites. Dahl must have known that the Times had no grievance against him, but he was ill enough advised to hire attorneys and try to make the Times pay him damages. Dahl lost. It was a foregone conclusion that he would lose. He should never have gone into court at all. It was an expensive trial. It cost Dahl nearly $2,000. This newspaper does not carry a chip on its shoulder. But when attacked, it is ready to fight at all times. It makes no difference whether it is the least powerful or most powerful man in Tacoma. The Times fights fair, but fights haixl. Preacher Denounces Astor Will; Says Money Should Go To State (H.v United Press Leased Wire.) 11111 MHIJ'KIA, Miiy IS. — Have the government seixe all but $2,000,000 of every multi-mill lon iiirc's fortune upon the possessor's death. Let the government ann and run all telegraph and telephone coiniMtiiies. Take over for government con trol the Standard Oil company and the tobacco trust. Have the government confiscate all ,<mi I hinds. "these are some of the methods of preventing the accumulation of swollen fortunes advocated by the Rev. George Chalmers Rich mond, rector of St. John's f'Jjits ccpnl church here, whose bitter denunciation of the will of the late Colonel John Jacob Astor has created a furore. The Rev. Mr. Richmond com pared the terms of Astor's will, handing down the bulk of his great fortune to his son, will that of Dr. Francis Bacon, the late surgeon of Yale university, who out of a $400,000 estate left $10(1,0,10 to be used In the fight on tuberculosis, a few thousand to other worthy causeß and the remainder to help poor boys through Yale. Astor Is Scored. "We are filled with patriotic stream of women going in and out of the atore. Mr. Bacbrach had seated himself near the shame after reading the will of John Jacob Astor," declared the clergyman. "He stands forth at the Judgment bar before the Christian conscience of the Amer ican people. "It is a disgrace to leave a for tune of $50,000,000 In these days." May riwrt Will. New York is also eagerly dis cussing whether the heir to be born to Mrs. Madeline Force As tor In July may not upset the colonel's will.

He was continually saying, "Excuse me," in the middle of the sentence to hurry away and find a clerk, display a bit of goods or see that gome one wax made comfortable and at home. He Worked Hard. How Joe Uachrach, the clerk, grew to Joseph Bachrach, rich merchant, is told by hts simple statement that he began clerking for Gross on Tacoma avenue aft er finding the horse shoe. Mr. Feist, now touring' Europe, had a small store, not much stock or money, but plenty of energy. It was natural that the two should become partner?, move to Pacific avenue, buy their present store building; buy the adjoining property, have a Bargain Annex on C near Thirteenth, and then sell the adjoining property to buy the corner at Thirteenth and C. Mr. Bachrach's business bob by is discounting bills. He has a wife and two fine children, a boy and girl. "All I can afford," be says. He's keeping that horse shoe but not making a collection of them. ■ Princess Rewards Him SANTA BARBARA, Cal., May IS.—A check for $40 from Prin cess Rosplgllosi was received to dny by George Norton, who found a cigarette case worth $1,000 I which the princess had lost.
